I keep planning on doing a favourite beauty items every month and next thing you know it is the end of the following month.

So my first favourite is from Cocoa Brown Tan, I have the 1 Hour Tan Mousse in Dark, Normal and Lovely Legs.


I used the Lovely Legs tan a few weeks ago as a very last minute tanning decision and stuck it on my arms, yeah I know it is meant to be for legs but sure it was an extra challenge for it 🙂  When I sprayed the tan on first I was like oh god it is orange, but once you rub it in it comes out really nice and it is very easy to blend. Here is a picture of the tan on one arm, I love a bit of colour! (Ignore my hairy arms)


I used the 1 Hour Tan Mousse in Dark for a wedding recently, I had the normal version of this before and just didn’t get the colour I wanted from one go.  I decided to give the dark a chance and I love it, I left it on overnight and it came out really well!!  The two things I love about this tan is that it doesn’t have any smell and the best thing, it looks really natural!!  Also as it is a mousse it is so easy to put on, goodbye streaks!!

My next favourite is the Magnitone Lucid Cleansing & Exfoliation Brush, it is so good!  I am using it with my own Clarins cleanser and I use it about two to three times a week. There are two settings on it, I use the lighter setting so it is a bit more gentle on my skin. It also gives a warning every 20seconds to move to a different section of your face and turns off after one minute. My favourite thing about it is that you can use it in the shower!! This is so handy so I can forget worrying about getting cleanser in my hair.


Like everybody seems to be blogging about the Botanics range from Boots. I have been using the micellar water for about 6months now and I love it,it literally melts away your makeup. I previously posted about this here. The product this month that I tried is the Radiance Balm, it is the only one I have ever used so I can’t compare it to the other brands.

It gives your skin a subtle glow and this comes through your foundation. I have heard of other bloggers mixing it with your foundation. I found my foundation went on a lot better and smoother, and even used less foundation then normal. It is definitely worth a purchase and Boots have it on offer a lot. Just to warn you it can be pretty hard to find in store though, it is always out of stock!!

I got a new face cream at the Into the West Blogger Network event in May from Boots, the No7 Early Defence Cream.

It is a light cream and normally I don’t like light creams because I don’t feel like they don’t absorb as good as the thicker creams. This cream absorbs really well and my skin does feel amazing after using it, I am using it about a month now and combined with the Magnitone Lucid my skin feels great as they both work great together.  One thing that is putting me slightly off buying this cream again is that I have very sensitive eyes and I feel that the scent is making them water a lot (but this could also be linked to hayfever).  However I definitely will be looking into the No7 range from Boots and see if there is other creams that might be more suitable for me.

That is a few of my favourite products that I have used over the past month and wanted to share with everybody!
